New Mexico is no different when it comes to looking at their laws but a recent shooting of a Rio Rancho police officer by a repeat violent offender has spurred the creation of a group called the Multidisciplinary Violent Crime Review. source The group will be looking at New Mexico policies around violent crimes and come up with solutions to problems that they find. The group is still very new but their findings could have major effects on New Mexico criminal justice system policies.

It is these kinds of changes that can ripple down to the criminal justice degree curriculum as the environment is constantly changing (and so the education needs to change too).
